Leicester Tigers

Home of the Leicester Tigers, Welford Road is the biggest conference and events venue in the East Midlands; with 34 suites and almost 4,000 square metres of space for up to 1,500 delegates, plus additional exhibition space, everyone’s a winner. No wonder it’s so highly favoured for big Asian weddings and celebrations, and also very much in demand for conferences, glittering awards presentations, gala dinners, drinks receptions, training days, team building, and smaller executive meetings. Book it and dress it for that all-important Christmas or summer party!

Let’s start big: in the Holland & Barrett Stand, The Final Whistle Suite on the ground floor has level direct vehicular access and offers 900 square metres of space for exhibitions; when combined with the first floor Premiership Suite this increases to 2,100 square metres – perfect for big product launches too. The Premiership Suite holds 1,500 guests for a reception or 1,500 seated in theatre style; it can be partitioned into three smaller spaces, each with a private foyer, a bar and lift access. Of these, the Honours and 1880 both hold a maximum of 600 guests seated or standing, and the Director’s Lounge holds 250.

In the Robin Hood Stand the Clubhouse holds 180 delegates in theatre style and 220 standing; it’s the only meeting space with views directly over the pitch from the lounge. In the Mattioli Woods Stand, the Tryline Suite accommodates the same numbers, and there are 25 Executive Suites for 8-12 people, all with air conditioning and views over the pitch (NB: not all have wifi), providing superb syndicate or breakout space alongside a bigger meeting or training session. The Crumbie Lounge with ABC Bar can also be hired for events for up to 160 guests and the opportunities for team building on the famous pitch should not be missed.

Opt for the DDP for events with 10 or more delegates, bringing you excellent value for money, and including room hire, basic stationery, and a two-course hot or cold buffet lunch. Welford Road has high speed wifi, and all your audio-visual needs and top-notch catering will be arranged by the well-polished events team.

With plenty of free on-site parking, Leicester Tigers is easy to reach from major routes and transport networks, being within walking distance of Leicester Train Station. 12 hotels within a five-mile radius offer over 700 bedrooms for those essential overnight stays.
